    I know they're holding back information. There are over 3000 pages of reports to read through, and not much has been released.

    I've been thinking about making threads for them. It's easier to find information on Rose Levandoski, so I think I can give some information out on her case. Debra Gunter, however, is a different story. Other than the mention of her in the one article, I haven't found much on her case. My calls to the Gautier PD are going unanswered. Hopefully, I can find some more info at the libraries today.
    Help bring Janie Sanders' murderer to justice.

    They lost evidence that could have contained DNA and spent time looking for a red Mustang.

    IT kills me that there are so many of these cases unsolved. Someone has to know something.

    Is it. Known to be an El Camino for sure? Could it have been a Ford Ranchero? I have a reason for asking.

    There was a previous post stating not to fixate on the car, since the perp could have used a different one. If you have ANYTHING that could remotely help, I would recommend contacting LE.

    It was believed to be an El Camino. A definite ID wasn't made. A description from an eyewitness who didn't know the difference could across the same for either vehicle.

    Just now seeing the responses for some reason. This is my reason for asking.

    At the time this happened i was living in central FL and going to high school. There was a man who lived there. He worked at a conveinence store. I'll call him W. he had two teenaged sons, S & M. He lived a couple blocks away from the store with his gf and sons. My bff dated the olsedst and i sort of semi dated the youngest.

    Frequently W,S,&M would leave town a few days st a time. S told bff they were fishing but we never saw any evidence of it, and were both very suspicious of the fishing story at the time. We thought their trips had to do with drugs.

    W drove an early 70s model blue Ford Ranchero. We both stopped seeing S&M so it became a non issue with us and I dont know what ever became of them. After high school I lost touch with the bff and found out last year she passed away in 1999. Its probably a very long shot but the day I read about this case I immediately thought about the Ranchero, and the fishing trips.

    ETA link for pics of blue Rancheros. Ws was like the one in the top row second from left.

Maybe someone can help.

    Detective Versiga is looking for any information regarding information on anyone who had reason to travel I-43 in the '70's, El Caminos that are dark blue or station wagons that could be mistaken as an El Camino, and anyone that was acting strange before or after her death.

    He is also looking for a William Jaun, possible Jaun William, or his family. They either lived in Pascagoula or visited before 1973. He had a daughter that was between 10 and 17 years old in 1973.

    Any information would help.
    There is a Juan Williams listed on Helen st.

    Do you have any info that may help, I know the general area and remember hearing of the crime. The I-43 reference has me confused, can you explain.

    Janie Sanders

    I'm going to guess that "I-43" was meant to be Hwy 43? At any rate, it looks like the vehicle's tires were purchased in California or Oregon. Now let's see, how many serial killers travelled cross country from the West Coast to the south in the 1970's? And I don't mean to be facetious at all. I'm greatly relieved that there's been progress on Janie's case, and sincerely hope it continues.

    Here is Det. Versiga's contact information again:

    "If you have any information about the case, call Detective Versiga at (228) 938-6682."

    **Janie Sanders Homicide...Need Information**
    by Darren Versiga on Saturday, February 5, 2011 at 11:21pm
    I need anyone to come forward who may have had someone pull up to them in a vehicle and exspose themself. Do not get transfixed on the Blue El Camino...Bad Guy may have had another vehicle. This would have been in the 70's and 80's. He would pull really close to the female and drive by slow so someone could see what he was doing. Real Prevert. I'm sure that someone else is out there who may have been a victim of this guy and someone knows who this guy is. Someone knows of someones brother, father, or friend ...etc that was weird like this. Please call me with information. I have two victims so far and I know there are more. Both say he drove an El Camino.
    More at the link

    ETA: Forgot to mention that Larry Mann, who Det. Versiga considered a suspect, was executed in April for the 1980 abduction and brutal murder of another young girl in Pinellas County, Florida, 10 year-old Elisa Nelson.

    The El Camino (or similar car) had a camper on the back of it. So, the back was closed in and could have indeed been the crime scene. With so little time to commit the murder, it is hard for me to imagine where he could have taken her in time to then leave her at the location she was discovered.

    Perhaps the guy softened her up a bit on previous trips when he didn't have time... such as telling her he'd give her a ride home or whatever else. So, the day he decided to kill her, she got right into the car with him.

    i am thinking this because of the girl murdered basically in school (or very near it). Could someone see from outside the hallway she had to pass down?

    The murderer might be someone who would watch and plan.
